Tuesday!

At the Mueller workshop we were reminded that big shapes are so important. I made up this figure...(and focused mostly on "big shapes"!) I painted it over an old painting. It's just for practice.

Oil Study, Celeste Bergin, Practice figure, oil on 8x10 canvas panel.

It really works doesn't it? The 'big-shapes' here really do it all, the detail to come would simply be that ... detail.

Yesterday's is a lovely scene. I can't believe you dashed it off it looks far to good.

My eyes are really drawn to those spots of light on her shirt. Wonderfully painted!

Your practice is perfect.

I agree...the umbrella is the big shape focal point, but also the yellow. This is pretty.

You always get the big shapes and make it look easy. Beautiful and fluid...this has an emotion quality.
